Chronograph

Post by Raymond » Sat Jun 02, 2012 3:02 am

Hey Folks,
I was just wondering if anyone had a chance to see the posts awhile ago on Archery Talk about making your own homemade chronograph that you would connect to a laptop computer? Did any of you make one or know how it turned out? No, I haven't started one or even thought about starting to make one. I have more than enough on my plate trying to get my BBQ/Smoker made.
Thanks,
Raymond

You can get a real Chrony so cheap now that it seems the best way to go. Sportsman's Guide, Cabelas, and Bass Pro sell varoius models for well under a 100 bucks. And unless you own a pro shop and use these things 20 times a day, they will work just fine. JMO.

Hey Folks,
I will worry about getting one later. I know my Equinox is fast enough for me anyway, :) . Thanks for all your responses.
